CAW'S HARGROVE CHALLENGES AIR CANADA TO SEEK RE-REGULATION

 TORONTO, Feb. 22 /CNW/ - Buzz Hargrove, CAW union president, responded to Air Canada president Hollis Harris' call for a five per cent wage cut by employees, saying, "There's over capacity - Air Canada is competing head on with Canadian Airlines plunging into close to million dollar a day losses."
 "Wage cuts by workers will not save the airlines."
 "Ninety million dollars in savings over two years is meaningless when Air Canada is losing close to a million dollars a day."
 Hargrove explained, "If, instead of taking money out of workers' pockets, Air Canada demanded our cooperation in challenging the federal government to re-regulate this industry, it would make sense. Without re-regulation, the grounding of this industry will continue."
 CAW Local 2213 representing 3200 workers at Air Canada recently signed an agreement with Air Canada extending the collective agreement to September 30, 1993.
